  • Chris Waugh, in reply to Hebe,

    I think you need to come home for a summer.

    No, we just had a summer, and for all my whingeing I actually prefer the winter. One can always put more clothes on....

    "Home", heh, a rather troublesome little word.

  • Jos,

    There's a quote for that word.

    Closer up, I think the yellow tinted lilies are more interesting than the pure white, as the have a greater range on tones.

    Curious effect. The edges of the petals look like they've been penciled, but this is raw footage.

    Ben, these two hang out on our deck together all the time. None of my birds squabble ;) look at these 2 although not great photos ,you get the gist…
    and forget the dirty floor.
    The blackbird comes in every day when the door is open. I closed it one morning to find shrieks coming from my Dracaena Marginata. A wax eye was sitting on one of its branches.Suffice to say he wasn't too happy about staying in all day. Suffice to say, thoughts went to birdshit everywhere.

    You're inviting birdshit! I learned that the hard way when I thought it might be cool to let some lost ducks live on our back lawn. Pretty soon every exterior surface was covered in shit and I couldn't get rid of the ducks, they didn't want to go. I ended up having to actually chase them around with a broom, screaming, until they decided to push off.

    I leave the door open because we have a dog! That is dog food not bird food. I throw out a bit of older bread for them over the deck, they still come back. Greedy lil' sods :)
    They don't shit unless you scare them and I've been there done that. Its easier all round to let them have a wee snack and go on their merry way.

    Ditto!

    I once had a pipiwharauroa/shining cuckoo roost in the top of the pole that holds up my roof (a seawashed/seabourne totara.) It didnt crap the entire night - and I felt so honoured by its presence (me & pipiwharauroa go back a loooong way.)

    The blackbirds that hop in & out of my front (seaward)door never crap inside either-

    Chicken shit in the kitchen here; Bossy and Rocket are looonely now their two companions have carked it, so they come inside whenever they can. I count mysellf fortunate they do not want to sit on the couch and watch TV with their people like my friend’s chook does.
